Have you ever experienced waiting for hours for your turn at the bank, the grocery or at concerts? That can be quite annoying. But what’s even more annoying and frustrating at the same time is when some of the people in the line with you are very unruly. You’ll see people who are trying to cut through the line, and then there are those who are just plain disorganized. At such a time, you need someone who’ll take care of crowd control.
But aside from crowd controllers, it’s a wise idea to make use of stanchions. These are crowd control ropes which are often used to guide patrons or even direct them to where they should go so that a line would look organized. There are stanchion posts which are ideal for any type of setting including banks, lobbies, restaurants, shopping centers, retail stores, museums, & a lot more. Stanchion posts can come in the form of velvet ropes. Basically, these velvet rope stanchions are made of a soft foam core and wrapped with nylon velour. There are snap type rope ends on each end which are usually attached to the posts.
There are other forms of stanchion posts. On the whole, it depends on the establishment how they want the stanchions made. They may even opt to have their company name printed on the stanchion. There are also what we call barricades and these are ideal for controlling traffic and providing security and privacy. These are ideal for crowded places where people have to contend with vehicular traffic as well. Indeed, there are many different ways to control a crowd and keep them organized. People need to know that these products being used to organize lines and queues are not meant to bother them but are merely used to put a crowd in order and to ensure the protection of everyone as well.
